Reports as low as $49 with our Total Compliance Package

All companies that conduct business in Wisconsin, whether foreign or domestic, are required to submit an annual report to the Wisconsin DFI (Department of Financial Institutions). The Wisconsin DFI considers annual reports to be a matter of compliance. Although they are one of many compliance documents that a company must submit, they are arguably one of the most important. When filing these documents, businesses must report if there are any significant changes to their corporate structure, such as a change in office.

Companies can also use the annual reports to update state officials about how to best contact them. If there has been a change in the principal address, businesses should indicate this when filing their forms. Similarly, if a business has elected to change its registered agent, they should indicate this on the annual form as well. However, companies cannot use an annual report to change the company name with the state of Wisconsin. To do so, they must complete a separate form from the annual report.

For domestic companies, the due date for submitting an annual report is the end of a company’s anniversary quarter. Every company has a date when they were established, and this date falls within one of four quarters:

  • January – March
  • April – June
  • July – September
  • October – December

Companies can file at any time during their anniversary quarter, but they must file by the last day of the quarter. Foreign entities must submit their annual reports to the Wisconsin DFI by March 31, no matter when they were created.
